This is definitely worth a try if you're looking for some fun tasting wines. There are no grapes here, just fruit wines. So wine snobs stay away.

We enjoyed taking the free mini-tour. No charge for wine tasting, and they allow you to try anything they have, not just what they choose. Very friendly casual atmosphere and more wine choices than just the citrus range.

We had a living social certificate for the tour with a take home bottle of wine. Tour and tasting great with the special wine smoothies which were very helpful for our little weekend getaway. Will definitely return when in the neighborhood. Perfect.

"Perfect" is the best word an owner could hear when one describes an experience at their place, and I'm thrilled that's how your tasting and tour was! If you were coming from Chicago like your profile says, I hope you enjoyed the break from the cold weather, and I'm very much looking forward to having you back the next time... More

First you see a little film about the winery. Then you are taken on the short tour of were they hold the wine for aging etc. The wine tasting was fun. There were only three of us so we were able to take our time and sampled 4-5 wines/slushes/champagne. The gift shop has a lot of cute items to but... More

You should always have fun while tasting wines, so I'm pleased hearing that's exactly what you and your party did! You didn't comment too much on the actual wines, but I do hope you enjoyed them! If you're ever back in the area, we'd love to have you back. Until then, Vince, Owner More

Ugh, don't waste your time. I'm sorry. Who likes fruit wine? You will acquire diabetes by the time you leave and go through their tasting. It's a tourist trap store with a standing wine tasting counter. When I think winery, I envision a romantic setting and this is the opposite. Never again.

We're definitely more fun and unique -- just like our wines. However, if you were expecting and hoping for a "romantic" setting, I can see why you'd be disappointed from the get-go. I'm just bummed it altered your entire experience. I know you said "never again", but maybe one day you'll change your mind and give us another shot. Maybe... More

This was our first wine tasting and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The wine smoothies are particularly delicious. We tasted 4 wines and 3 smoothies, at no charge. HOWEVER, do not forget to tip. We observed others not tipping their server. Be prepared - you will be purchasing wine and smoothie mixes. Very nice gift shop also.

This was really your first wine tasting? How cool! I feel kind of honored that were able to give that first experience to you. I guess it's just a bonus you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves here, as well as the wine. While, I want your wine and smoothie mixed to last you for a while, I do hope we see you... More

Go and take the tour and taste the wine.... You will not be disappointed with the wine. Make sure and sign up for the wine club. Btw, so many wonderful wines to choose from I wouldn't dare make a suggestion. However, I do have my favorites!

You know, I actually like that you didn't make any suggestions -- you want people to try the wines for themselves and develop their own favorites! I have to respect that. :) I do wish I knew your faves, but you could probably just catch me next time you're in and let me know, then (if I don't already know,... More

Great free tasting. Our host was quite knowledgeable. All the wins tasted great but the Key Lime was real good. They have a tour but we didn't go on it. Pressed for time.

Even though you were pressed for time, I'm happy you stopped in to try our wines, Jack! Maybe you can stop in again sometime to go on our tour. It doesn't take too long, but I do think you'll find it pretty interesting. Hope to see you in again, Vince, Owner More
